Default Re: Neural Network predictions converging to one value

I have a couple of points, based on not dissimilar experiences of my own.

First, are you concentrating on the calculated errors on your out of sample data as you train the neural network? In sample errors are not easy to draw conclusions from (unless your data set is very large compared to the complexity of the neural network). I am not sure what software you are using, but in JNNS for example, you can see a graph of OOS errors as you are training.

Secondly, as a simple test, you could try repeating the training with the input data replaced by entirely random data (but keeping the same output data) to see the comparison.
